Vehicle Fleet Management Lifecycle

Apr 26, 2019 | Posted in Jim Pattison Lease


Vehicle Selection

Selecting the right vehicles for your fleet can be an overwhelming task for most business owners. With other responsibilities, it can appear much more daunting than it needs to be. A good fleet management company should have relationships in place with an array of manufacturer dealers to find any make and any model of vehicle. It’s also important to have the capabilities to order your vehicle build to specifications from the factory or from a dealer’s inventory, depending on your timelines. Expert advice means having the ability to take advantage of the best vehicle for your business and budget to save you time and money.

Lease Structure

Leasing can appear complicated at first, but it doesn’t have to be. Fleet management companies that offer customized lease terms that match your unique needs will give you more flexibility for your business. You have the option of both open and closed-end leases. With these options, you have the ability to select what works best for your company’s fleet vehicle needs.

Customization & Delivery

In today’s day and age, the attention of the consumer goes a long way. It’s important that your fleet management company has the resources necessary to ensure your fleet is properly decaled and up to par to ensure your company is well represented on the road. Beyond brand image, the ability for your fleet to complete day-to-day work is also of the utmost importance. Whether that’s a sales vehicle for your travelling executives or a work truck that requires proper accessorizing to ensure proper capabilities on the job site, selecting usage appropriate options and upfitting is key to having an efficient, smooth-running fleet.

Fleet Usage & Reporting

Maximizing fleet efficiency is a top priority for the majority of business owners. To get the most out of your fleets potential, powerful online and mobile analytic tools including vehicle monitoring (telematics/GPS) can be accessed by multiple users in your organization and can be used to allow you to gather more in-depth information on your fleet.

Fuel & Maintenance Management

A comprehensive maintenance plan means your vehicles stay on the road. Fuel and maintenance cards give your company the potential to access a multitude of fuel and maintenance vendors. Beyond that, it allows your employees access to purchase fuel through pay at the pump technology while consolidating fuel and maintenance expenses. Fleet cards have also been proven to reduce driver downtime and manage costs; enabling you to maximize your fleet’s potential.

Remarketing Services

At the end of your fleet’s life cycle, vehicle resale plays a very crucial role. Remarketing can be done through multiple sales channels at the end of the lease term to ensure the highest return. Some of these options include: selling the vehicle at auction, selling to a third party driver or selling to the client directly. Resale is often overlooked in the fleet cycle but it remains a vital area to the cost of your fleet.

What makes telematics so important?

Fleet management customers are adopting telematics technology at a rapidly increasing pace. More companies are connecting their vehicles in order to gain real time insights into what is occurring within their fleet. A good fleet management company understands that telematics is an important tool that can help improve safety and productivity, increase fleet utilization, and reduce operating costs of any type of fleet. Telematics provides access to significant amounts of vehicle data that can be utilized with business intelligence and artificial intelligence tools.

In addition, many fleet clients are taking advantage of fleet management company capabilities of embedding telematics data directly into a fleet management system, allowing fleet managers the convenience of a single platform to manage all aspects of their fleet. This includes consolidated security, billing, and analytics. These integration capabilities ensure that only the information of utmost importance is refined for review, resulting in quicker decision making for fleet clients.
